Results below. But short back story. Bike didn't start 1 day, i thought I had seen the flickering dash which I read was an indication of the faulty R/R. So I cursed a few times. Did all the checks, results below. And it appeared the Regulator was giving bad results (i think, please see my question below).
So I decided to start it up for no real reason, confident it wouldn't. And with the Regulator disconnected it started. So I reconnected it, and it still started up. WTF??
I don't understand, I don't know if maybe a faulty connection? And disconnecting and reconnecting smoothed it out? Maybe it was extra cold the few days I tried to start it a few weeks back when it didn't start and it was grumpy? Little baffled. Any thoughts?
